Student Services

Lots can happen during your time at college and that’s why our Student Services team is on hand to advise and support you.

CAREERS ADVICE

The Progression+ team includes experts in admissions, careers, higher education, work experience and apprenticeships who offer advice and guidance. They can help with all aspects of careers and progression which includes applying for courses, interview tips, CV writing, application forms, job and apprenticeship searches and gap year opportunities.

FINANCIAL SUPPORT

We believe that financial constraints alone should never be enough to prevent a student from studying and so we will work with you to find out what support you may be entitled to and help you to access any funding available.

ADDITIONAL LEARNING SUPPORT

Whether you have a learning difficulty such as dyslexia, need a little extra help with English or maths, have a physical disability, or need additional tuition because English is not your first language, our specialist staff will support you throughout your studies.

SAFEGUARDING

Are you or is someone you know at risk of harm? Do you need help to keep yourself or someone else safe?

Find out contact details of the college’s Safeguarding team and other agencies on our Safeguarding page.

COUNSELLING

The counselling team offers a confidential, free service to all students at the college. Our fully qualified counsellors can provide specialised support for those times when life can be hard to manage due to personal reasons, or when studying becomes a challenge.

Counselling sessions can be booked by dropping into Student Services. Alternatively our counsellors can be contacted directly via email: counselling@crawley.ac.uk.

In addition, to meet the growing needs of our nation’s Children and Young People, Chichester College Group has been part of a group pioneering a UK-wide directory of qualified Children and Young people counsellors and therapists with TAC Access. Our students can use this exciting and powerful tool to select a professional they would like to work with either face-to-face or online.

Please note, funding for this service will need to come from external funds, e.g. parent/carer.

STUDENT TUTORS

All full-time students have access to the team of Student Tutors who can advise and support you with pastoral matters. They will deliver the ACES programme; a series of interactive workshops covering a wide range of topics to cultivate learners’ personal development. Students will have four 1:1s with their Student Tutor during the year.

The team has established links with a range of external support agencies including sexual health, counselling, drug and substance misuse and local youth services. The team is trained in Child Protection and Safeguarding and can make appropriate referrals to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all students.

Students can drop into Student Services any time during office hours. The office is open 8.30am-5.00pm Monday to Thursday and 8.30am-4.30pm on Friday.
